#9142 Using Greek Characters Instead Of Greeklish

Posted by MAVROLIO on 01 October 2006 - 02:15 AM in Explore Crete

i only have the english language on my computer, so i cant write in greek letters even if i wanted to.
also i feel if i use greek words that other people are not familiar with, if they are really interested they ask what it means.
but i can understand wanting to use brackets for the translation. i dont do it on purpose, i usually talk like that also. when speaking english .... greek words come flying out left and right. and when i speak Greek, lots of american words come flying out. i can't help it. it's natural to me

#9099 In Love With A Greek Boy

Posted by MAVROLIO on 28 September 2006 - 08:42 PM in Meet in Crete

thank you Wim, i see you have done your research. left or right?.... i'll let you guess which one i am. My Big Fat Greek Wedding aint got nothing on CRETAN weddings!!! i am Greek myself, 100 % Cretan ... just born in the U.S. of A.
i dont have a family pic in the pics you searched in. But there is a pic of the 3 lyrarides that played at our engagement. Hopefully we will get married and stay married. Maybe you can give some advice .... sag to sag. (we have the same birthday)
Wim, where i come from we dont play with bouzoukia. But i am the one holding the mantolino, pretending to play it very well.

ante geia!

#9089 In Love With A Greek Boy

Posted by MAVROLIO on 28 September 2006 - 02:04 AM in Meet in Crete

I wonder what happend to all the "holiday loves and lovers" which have so intimately shared their affections and kamakis adventures with us.

Are they still in love, do they still see/write/phone/exchange pictures/mail, and weep at night?

Keep us informed, so we'll be able to enjoy this life internet soap

Tell uncle Wim about it

hello uncle Wim. B) how are you? i am doing well and i would like to update your internet soap.
i wanted to let you know, that August 6th of 2006 my cretan man and i got engaged. I have resigned from my job here in New York, and am moving to Crete in the next few weeks. The wedding will be August of 2007. :) :o

#9085 Didn't want to come back.

Posted by MAVROLIO on 27 September 2006 - 11:10 PM in Explore Crete

Tink 25 Avgoustou is now a pedestrian road. that's the road that goes from Koule all the way past the 4 lions (Liontaria)
its become veeeeeeery inconvenient to get around Iraklio since now you have to go all the way around then straight on through. it looks pretty but still there are mopeds, papakia, scooters, motorcycles that go through that street.

oh yea, and earthquakes happen so frequently in Kriti that no one even mentions them anymore. there was a good on in i believe it was July 29th. that night i spent on the floor in my apartment. it's a 1-bedroom and there were 4 of us! so instead of yiayia sleeping on the floor (NEVER!) it was me, and i remember waking up and shouting "MAMA! SEISMOS!" (MOM EARTHQUAKE) and going back to sleep. lol.
the first quake i was in was 2002 and it was BAD!

#9084 Living In Heraklion

Posted by MAVROLIO on 27 September 2006 - 11:03 PM in Explore Crete

i think the webmaster deleted one of yianni's posts.
well kokkini is close enough to iraklio. inside iraklio everything is pretty much walking distance. its just too damn noisy! (for me at least)
a little over a year ago, i visited a friends boyfriend's apartment (with my friend of course!) and he had a view of Koule, the kastro. he was paying almost as much as myself for a tiny one room apartment. studio is what we call it in america. where one room is the bedroom/living room/kitchen/dining room & all you have is a separate bathroom, and a balcony large enough to fit one aplostra and one chair.

#9083 Crete In November?

Posted by MAVROLIO on 27 September 2006 - 10:49 PM in Explore Crete

i dont know much about Chania, but Iraklio is beauuuuuuuuuuutiful in the fall and winter!!!! the big brown, dry, rocky mountains are covered in green during the fall and winter months, its a totally different Kriti!
i would definitely go. THe only thing about Chania in the winter, is that it slows down tremendously. but i guess that would affect more the party goers, and club hoppers.

also, if you will be renting a car. there is a rock taverna in the village of Kiparisi. im not sure what it's called, but its only open in the fall/winter. the food is really good, its has a self serve wine area, the wine is in barrels. and the place is candle lit only. its really cool! maybe Yianni knows what i'm talking about. i've only been there once, and was lucky enough to be there on a night where the xainides were "performing" in the taverna.

#9030 Living In Heraklion

Posted by MAVROLIO on 24 September 2006 - 11:32 PM in Explore Crete

Pernille this is not true. the closer to the centre you are the more expensive the rent is. i will give you an example, my apartment is not very close to the center, it is by agios kostantinos the cemetary. i pay 256 euro a month for a 1-bedroom.
my cousin lives in kokkini hani, has a 1 bedroom on the beach and pays 180 euro a month for rent. so the farther from the centre you go, the least expensive the rent is.
